I am an artist. A mountain biker, a dreamer. But mostly an ordinary woman with an extraordinary willingness to let my imperfections shine. I believe our flaws make us beautiful and my art is a joyously imperfect expression of a single thread in the tapestry of our world. I paint with soft pastels due to the intimate contact between my hands, the pastels and the painting surface. My works are inspired by the beauty of nature all around us, as well as the quirky personality and lively spark in the eyes of an animal. One thing I rediscover each time I paint is each moment is magical and precious.
